Forum: GratefulDead Subject: new list and oh yea happy thanksgiving

Good morning boys and girls, I was thinking about yesterday's list of the RS or our pick of the ten best guitarist in rock history and as I saw it.There was of course no real concencus here as we all have differing tastes in style and in what form of music is played to begin with.I do think that Jerry is left of all these lists (on the 100 I'm not sure) but I think it just comes back to those shows that are so fuckingly iratatetingly disappointing. Look at it as a food critic checking out a restaurant ,hey he gets served crap that's exactly what he'd write. Now to the new list that these people are not given their right place in rock or even country rock history.Because of his early departure from this life #1 is Clarence White,Stephen Stills.Robbie Robertson,RY Cooder,I'm throwing in Rusty Young on peddle steel I think he just pulled Poco all together and he made that instrument at times sound like other worldly sounds.James Burton,Albert Lee played many years w/ Emmylou Harri's Hot Band and probably the guitarest that gets the least cred as far as notoriety is concerned as got to be Tom Petty's long time lead ax guy Mike Campell.This guy could play w/anyone at any time w/ any style you come you with.The guy that I forgot on yesterdays list maybe not top ten but will always have a soft spot for me is Jorma.At 70 he can still bring it both acoustically and of couse have a raging electric set as well.There are of course many more and this can and will go on ,that's what music does to people it is an art form in it's own right.Probably way to early to do this much thinking ....

Bird Song

Animated-Turkey.gif

Words by Robert Hunter; music by Jerry Garcia

All I know is something like a bird
within her sang
All I know she sang a little while
and then flew on

Tell me all that you know
I'll show you
Snow and rain

If you hear that same sweet song again
will you know why?
Anyone who sings a tune so sweet
is passing by
Laugh in the sunshine
sing
cry in the dark
fly through the night

Don't cry now
Don't you cry
Don't you cry
anymore
lalalada
Sleep
in the stars
don't you cry
dry your eyes
on the wind
lalalala
la........

Hari Kondabolu: "I have had vegan Thanksgiving of tofurkey and soy gravy. And it's not to say that Thanksgiving will ever justify the genocide of the Native Americans. But vegan Thanksgiving -- that's just spitting on the graves, isn't it?"

"I have had vegan Thanksgiving of tofurkey and soy gravy".

I've been a veg for 15 years. If it's a moral thing, you are or you aren't - Thanksgiving is just another day and I'm not making judgment on anybody, When I say the above, I am making do, not bragging. :)

BTW - Tofurkey sucks. Quorn is much better (in a desperate sort of way).

to all my friends:

http://old.news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20111123/ap_on_sc/us_sci_psychology_of_thanks/print

"Count your blessings this Thanksgiving. It's good for you.

While it seems pretty obvious that gratitude is a positive emotion, psychologists for decades rarely delved into the science of giving thanks. But in the last several years they have, learning in many experiments that it is one of humanity's most powerful emotions. It makes you happier and can change your attitude about life, like an emotional reset button."

What do you have to be thankful for this year? Please relate these to your loved ones! You & they will be glad you did...

Blessing to you & yours, I pray,
Jack
